Match Preview

Adamson and Sons remain unchanged Dumbarton host Stirling Albion and manager Alan Adamson has no new selection worries. Adamson is set to name the same injury and suspension free squad that made it six wins in seven games at East Fife in midweek and he admits that he is no hurry to change anything. "We have had a few games recently and you think about changing things but it would be unfair on a group of players that are flying at the moment to do that," he said. The Sons lost 5-1 to their visitors on their patch earlier this season and Adamson added: "That was a strange game as it was 1-1 at half-time and then everything they hit in the second half flew in. "It would be great to keep our run going and to make up for that defeat." Stirling Albion defender Brian Allison begins a two-game ban as his side travel looking to repeat the 5-1 success they had over the Sons in the opening weeks of the season. Shaun Dillon is available after injury and Joshua Flood comes back after a two-match suspension of his own. However, Marc McCulloch and Andy Hunter both remain out with knocks and striker Lewis Bonar left this week to play in Australia. Manager Greig McDonald said: "Alan Adamson has Dumbarton playing really well just now but we showed in the draw against Cowdenbeath in midweek that we can play a bit as well. "If our performance level from that game can be repeated then we are in with a chance and I would settle for any kind of win."

Match Report

Four-star Sons secure victory Mark Gilhaney scored a late brace as Dumbarton beat 10-man Stirling 4-1 at the Strathclyde Homes Stadium. The Binos got off to a flying start when Scott Davidson's long-range drive found the bottom corner after three minutes. Dumbarton hit back immediately after the restart, Ally Graham on hand to finish well inside the area from Patrick Walker's knock down. But Davidson turned the villain 10 minutes later when he was dismissed after raising his hands to an opponent. The Sons took the lead in the 73rd minute, Graham involved again as his cross was thumped home by Scott Agnew. And two goals from Gilhaney, one in the 80th minute and another seven minutes later ensured a comfortable finish. Defeat leaves Stirling bottom as they continue to search for a first win in eight outings.
